Since SAP global HQ is about 20 km from where i sit that one made the local newspaper here. The case is a tad more complicated in that there are no investigations against the woman by the police department in the US (as there have been in similar cases) as no one - being coughed/spit on - has come forward accusing her. SAP simply fired her using the atrociously bad US employee rights without all that much investigation, they don't have any particular ties or long-term employment with her - she previously worked for HP and IBM among others.12. A viral video of a woman deliberately coughing on masked shoppers at a Nebraska grocery store while laughing and calling them “sheep” has a perhaps-not-altogether-surprising local angle: the woman appears to be from Scottsdale. It took amateur sleuths just a few days to identify the woman as Janene Hoskovec, who at that time worked for SAP — a longtime Scottsdale resident, at least according to her social media. SAP put out a brief statement on Twitter, apparently in reference to the incident. “The health and safety of our employees and the communities in which we live and work are of utmost concern to us,” it reads. “We are taking the matter of an SAP employee incident very seriously and investigating the situation.” Later, SAP says she's no longer with the company.
Police however is now investigating those "amateur sleuths" for falsely identifying another woman to be her, leading to online and real-life harassment.
P.S.: SAP requires vaccination or testing from its employees throughout the company and has had 90% of its global workforce in home office since the beginning of the pandemic, currently extended until at least June '22.
